German Psychic Octupus Paul 'The Oracle' Predicts the Results of FIFA World Cup

The 8 Legged Paul "The Oracle Octopus" have correctly predicted every World Cup game involving the Geramny team so far. His Latest Prediction for Germany was to lose against Spain in the second Semi-Final of FIFA 2010 World Cup which resulted in the same what he predicted.

Paul was hatched at the Sea Life Park in Weymouth, England but currently resides at the Sea Life Aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany. On Tuesday, he chose a mussel from a glass tank marked with a Spanish flag and ignored a tank of Germanys Flag.

Paul makes his predictions courtesy of Oliver Walenciak and his staff. Two clear plastic boxes containing food (usually mussels or oysters) are lowered down into the aquarium's tank. The boxes have the flags of two countries attached to them, one of Germany, and one of their next opponent. The container selected by the hungry octopus is assumed to be the predicted winner.

Paul has been able to predict the winners of all six matches that the German team played in the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Starting from beginning, in Group D, the Germany team registered win over Ghana and Australia which he predicted earlier, followed by this, he predicted that Germany team would lose to Serbia and it happened exactly as if he designed the game for German Team.

In knock out stages, Paul predicted Germany's win over England in the round of 16 and then over Argentina in the quarter finals. Paul ended the German Team Journey in Semi - Final match against Spain where Germany's team lost and out of the competition which was accurately predicted in advance.

Now, the German team is out, I wonder would he predict the winner of FIFA 2010 World Cup, I guess the answer is NO as he is only specialist for Germany Football Team.
